“What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet.”

Do we recognize our best days or do we always compare them to what we suppose our best days would be like? I tend to be a pessimist, especially when I’m stressed (as I have been lately). I face every day with a tight chest and an aching head. I tend to look at the “bad” of today and dread what’s to come tomorrow. But what if tomorrow isn’t that bad? What if I make it bad through anticipation? What if, at the end of each day, I were to consider the quote in the subject of this post and acknowledge that the best days are yet to come? Would I not be able to look forward to the next day more positively?

Today was a bad day. Today, I struggled at work. I worried about finances. I found out that the man I love, the man I’ve been trying to help, the man I’ve been fighting for, has been lying to me and has betrayed me. I felt physical pain due to health issues. Today was a bad day.

Will tomorrow be a bad day? I don’t know. Maybe tomorrow will be one of the best days of my life. Maybe it won’t be. I have no way of knowing. But I do have control over how I approach it from the start. If I start my day convinced that things will go wrong…they will. But, you know what?

“…some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet,” so I don’t think I should rule out the possibility that one of those days might be tomorrow. So tomorrow (really today, now that it’s after midnight), I’m going to face the day with a fresh perspective, no matter how much physical pain and exhaustion I feel when I get up.

Tomorrow is a new day and it could be one of the best.
